“IMA provided AppNexus with an outsourced HR service for our European Headquarters based in London for 2 years and also assisted in the setting up and management of HR operations in France, Germany, Spain, Canada, Singapore and Australia. AppNexus has gone through considerable growth and IMA was always able to support the Company’s international growth plans on time and within budget.  AppNexus has now reached a size where we have taken our HR in-house; however, we have been delighted with the support we were given by IMA as our Company grew rapidly.  I would not hesitate in recommending IMA to other fast growing Tech companies.”

“In providing us with a means of expanding our recruitment presence in the UK, Interim Management Answers Ltd has been an invaluable partner. Nigel and his team have been extremely responsive, informative and flexible in supporting UBC’s initial efforts to engage an in-country advisor/consultant. IMA’s in-depth knowledge of labor laws, HR requirements and tax implications have allowed us to move forward in the UK knowing we have met all of the necessary requirements. We’ve been very satisfied with services rendered.”

“We hired IMA LTD to help us respond to a large public sector tender having entered the UK market from America we had little experience in he sector. Nigel guided us through writing our response, always striving to make it the best it can be which ultimately lead to us exclusively winning the bid. Nigel is a pleasure to work with, he is flexible, committed and takes the time to understand your business needs. He is not afraid to offer his opinion and expert recommendation and we would have no hesitation in recommending Nigel and IMA”

“Through Interim Management specialists IMA, who worked closely with us to scope our requirement, Lindsay Heggie was hired to undertake a review of our inside sales operation and make recommendations for improvement.   We gave her a wide ranging remit and a very tight timeline to work within.  As a highly knowledgeable and experienced call centre and inside sales professional she hit the ground running, and quickly got to grips with our operational practices and procedures, as well as the complexities involved.   As a result she was able to deliver this assignment on time. She easily adapted to our business environment and worked well with both our operations and management personnel.  She found time to provide mentoring to one of our young managers who greatly appreciated her input Her analysis was well documented and presented, and her recommendations easy to understand. Overall, our organization has been extremely pleased with the work she carried out and we have implemented her recommendations to the benefit of our inside sales centre. I’d thoroughly recommend Lindsay both as an operations executive and consultant and wouldn’t hesitate to work with Lindsay and IMA in the future”

“When we decided to open an office in the UK, I knew we would need a HR partner who would not only be a trusted advisor but also someone who would work with our company’s best interest in mind.  Esther has exceeded all of our expectations. She is extremely competent, proactive and always very responsive in addressing our questions and concerns.   Esther has been instrumental in our success in opening up an office in the UK by way of helping us offer our employees the very best programs and policies that are the right fit for our company, culture and size.  Additionally, she has guided us through our practices ensuring we stay within line of compliance.  Esther has also referred us to experts within her network who have been able to partner with in regards to immigration, benefits and employment law.  I would not hesitate to recommend Esther as a true and valuable business partner.”

“In October 2013, my colleague and I relocated to London to prepare for the UK launch of San Francisco-based startup, TaskRabbit. IMA, and specifically Frankie, came highly recommended to us by London & Partners for relocations services. Frankie worked with my colleague and I to find a 3-month rental starting in October. Considering it was the end of the year, options were limited - especially for a short term stay - but Frankie managed to find us a gorgeous 2-bedroom flat in Shoreditch within out budget. Throughout the entire process, Frankie made us feel like we were in good hands; she was communicative, professional and very efficient with her search. She was also incredibly intuitive, understanding what we were looking for in a home without having to ask too many questions. Both my colleague and I ended up having to extend our stay in London, and we both chose to work with Frankie again to find us short term stays. In both instances, I completely trusted Frankie with the relocation process and was extremely happy with the results. Can't recommend Frankie enough, she's the best”

“"Frankie is amazing! Relocating from the US, she helped immensely and we could not have gotten a better result. After some attempts to view and contact letting agents before our move, we didn’t have any luck. Frankie helped us view, negotiate, and find the perfect flat for our family. She went above and beyond to look into schools, setup visits and continues to look after us as we are getting settled.”

Relocation

Background

IMA’s Relocation Service has been specifically designed to support international companies who are looking to make the transfer of employees to the UK as stress free as possible by delivering a personalised, bespoke service to meet the exact requirements of the Executive and his/her family coming to Britain.

 

As part of our service, we work within our clients’ relocation policies and will police this on each company’s behalf. Additionally, as we understand that deposits often need to be paid quickly to secure a property or school, IMA will make these payments so as to avoid internal issues in raising these emergency payments.

 

We are able to source both long-term and short-term rentals.

 

Within this overview, we have laid out the typical procedures we follow to ensure that our clients satisfy the relocation needs of their Executives.

 

What will we do for you/your Executives?

 

We Understand your Needs

 

If you are unsure of which area you would like to rent, we are happy to take you on a tour of areas we think will suit your requirements before our search process begins, on an expenses only basis.

  • The first thing we do before taking on any new search is to spend time with the Executive face to face or via Skype to get a complete understanding of his/her requirements

We Search

After understanding your precise requirements we carry out an extensive search of properties and visit all properties before shortlisting them. We explore the type of property you are looking for; its size, location, proximity to amenities/transport links together with your budget.

  • As IMA is an independent company, we are able to provide a comprehensive range of properties from all letting agents in the targeted geographical areas

We Shortlist

Once the properties have been personally vetted by us and a short list drawn up, we will organise viewings for you over a 1 day period, if possible, until you find the perfect home.

  • We take the Executive and his/her partner on a tour of the properties and during these visits we take time to pass on our knowledge of the location

We Negotiate and Secure

Once your accommodation has been found, we begin negotiations with agents working to secure the best possible terms for you, giving you time to focus on your move.

  • Unlike most relocation agents we don’t charge a month’s rent as our fee and so you can rest assured that we will be getting you the best price possible

Before you Move in

We will complete the inventory, arrange the Tenancy Agreement and transfer utilities and services into your name. We can also assist with the aftercare service such as engaging removal firms.

  • We are completely committed to making the moving and relocation process as simple as possible and as such, can organize a driver to collect you at the airport with keys to your new home and can also have the accommodation professionally cleaned and the garden maintained before your arrival

Fees

We charge a day rate of £400 per day + VAT and monies are due 14 days after the Tenancy date begins. There is no registration fee and search fees are capped to a maximum of 5 days for a property search and 8 days if the search is to include schools. We are also happy to secure a property, at your request, by paying holding deposits and advance monies on your behalf in order to make the transaction run smoothly.

On Completion of your Lease

If you require your tenancy to be extended we will negotiate this for you with the Agency for a flat fee of £200.

 

If you’re ready to depart and vacate the property we will liaise with the agent/landlord on your behalf throughout the departure process, arrange cleaning contractors, conduct a thorough search of Inventory reports, negotiate and agree dilapidation costs enabling the return of your deposit and organise utility disconnection. This is at a cost of a 1 day fee of £400.

 

School Search

If a family is relocating and schools are needed, IMA is proficient in finding schools. Once again, we talk to the Executive to find out exactly what type of school they are ideally looking for taking into account age, gender, any religious denominations, special talents, preference for mixed or single sex schools and if an international school is preferred to a school following a UK curriculum.

We conduct a thorough search and visit schools which have spaces and meet the criteria and after visiting them we will arrange tours and meetings accompanying the Executive and his/her partner. We will also provide Government OFSTED reports on each school.
